  1. And if you try using rank within category, it is a total mess. You need a large sampling to provide an adequate index for a good measurement. Since the old gunfights didn't have categories, they lumped everyone together, just like rank does now.
  2. Just because a system is complicated, doesn't make it wrong. But you are correct in that there are problems with Rank scoring. And it does not work well at all for smaller matches. Just too many holes.
  3. Sorry, but I don't agree and you already demonstrated that you see a symptom of rank while missing how it is actually scored.
  4. You are only comparing two shooters, is that is all that is in the match. You are actually "cherry picking" in your example and leaving out everyone else that shot the match. I realize this is common misunderstanding and complaint about rank. Rank scoring is about how many shooters you beat out for each stage - that includes everyone. Your example is missing the understanding of how rank is done. You are pointing out what bothers many, but not how the match is scored. Is not the Super bowl is determined by the number of times you cross the goal line - not how m
  5. Do you understand Rank scoring? Your answer would indicate that you do not. In either system, you do not have to win all the "gunfights", but in rank it means you won more than those who scored lower than you did.
  6. Have to generally agree. Total time is more of a sprint as you can go as fast as you can since misses, while having some impact, generally will not hurt you as badly as in a rank point match. So the two do have to be shot slightly differently. That is one of the reasons many do not rank. With Rank, it is how many gunfights did you win. WIth total time, it is not how many fights you won but more about how much you won on those that you won.
  7. I ordered a few thousand coated bullets. They looked great, but I noticed that 5% or so slid into the brass too far. SO I measured and although the top of the bullet was .358, the bottom may be below .350. So I contacted the maker. He checked into it and found that one of his molds was messed up. He thanked me for letting him know and sent me 500 bullets to make up for it.
  8. That's okay, Von. Someone has to keep me honest
  9. Yes, Von, 125 JHP bullets were available, but did you notice I was not talking about that. I was talking about Lead bullets. Maybe someone some where made 125 grain Lead bullets, but I sure could not find them. As I mentioned, I had to order the 138 grain bullets from about 1000 miles away because that was the only source I could find then. And JHP's were not allowed since before I started SASS.
  10. Sidelined by a heart attack. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0832065/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm
  11. But nickel is what we normally use to greatly delay any problems. Just change them out very couple months and you will be fine. Pretty rig!
  12. You can always trust Delta Glenn & his crew.
  13. If you spray a bunch of brass but let it set for a few days, what is the impact?
  14. I have one with a 5 1/2 inch barrel that bought when I started in SASS many years ago. I have shot it with full loads once just to see. The recoil wasn't too bad for a full Mag. The design helps the recoil by rolling the pistol up. But i would not want to shoot full loads as there is just no need. And the gun will last much longer with moderate loads. I like shooting about 1100 fps when shoot mag loads, but not for cowboy.
  15. Yup, if they are New Vaquero, it will say so on the frame. A 58- S/N is most likely an original model so it will just say Ruger Vaquero on the frame.
  16. Contact the folks that made them and let them know. They normally want to know and should send you some replacements. I bought some from a vendor and they were concerned and sent me replacements of what we figured were about the right number (plus a few more) to fix me up. If they do not respond well, then let us know.

  18. The M9 is a fine pistol, although a little large for a 9mm.
  19. One thing I love about SASS is that we all can play and have a great time. We establish our own competition with those we know or get to know. And all can join the fun with out having to worry about how well we shoot - we are all welcomed! At the same time, it is great to honor those who have worked hard to achieve such great skills as our top shooters. It is a joy to see them perform - and to get to have them share with us as essentially all of them do so well. So Thanks!!!
  20. As you may know, when the Beretta was selected as the M9, it was between the Beretta and the Sig. I think the Sig was a little better pistol with great ergonomics, but they both met the requirements. The Beretta was a lot cheaper, so Beretta won out. But many folks always preferred the Sig, so I'm not surprised they won this time out. I wonder if Sig gave a better price break this time. As to caliber, no "normal" pistol round is a good stopper. And especially with FMJ bullets! So I agree with Pat Riot about bullets. The 45 is actually only a little better than the 9mm in stopp
  21. To clarify, Joe Bowman was an top notch exhibition shooter. I don't recall how well he sang. He passed away several years ago. Jim Bowman did the song. They were both at the Mulecamp shoot for several years. Both great guys!
